Mountain View Corridor, Utah (SR-85)

This will eventually form a ten lane (D5M), 35 mile western bypass of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area.

It is being built in stages, with the freeway first in some areas, the service roads first in others. An interactive map provides good detail:

The latest section, from 4100 South to S.R. 201, opened to traffic on 17 June.

Thanks for posting this, it's really interesting to see (as someone that had an enjoyable couple of days in Salt Lake city a few years ago). There definitely was a lot of traffic....

I remember enjoying the clean air of Utah in 1993 and 1994. However, when I took my late wife's ashes to Utah in 2000 I had noticed the brown stain of air pollution rolling up the Wasatch front to the east.

Despite a tram line for the 2002 winter Olympics, traffic was already growing.
